Why don't my links work lately?

    In the past, when I posted a link to one of my blog entries on my "Index" page, someone could click on it and be moved to that particular entry. Recently, when I post the link, it doesn't connect the reader, unless they copy and paste the link into their browser. This is true on Mozilla and on Google Chrome, too. I need the links to work!

  2. I see some titles that are not linked on your index page. This is an example:
    A Heschel Verse with Music
    http://rabbielimallon.wordpress.com/2012/06/04/6-4-2012-a-heschel-verse-with-music/

    Have you been using the Visual editor? The guide for creating links in posts and pages is here:
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/links/

    This is the general link model:
    Highlighted anchor text here

    To create a link like this one
    A Heschel Verse with Music

    Enter your anchor text you want to link to first - A Heschel Verse with Music. Then use your mouse to highlight that anchor text. Next click the chain icon in the editor and proceed to create the link to that page.

    <a href="http://rabbielimallon.wordpress.com/2012/06/04/6-4-2012-a-heschel-verse-with-music/">A Heschel Verse with Music</a>

    <a href="URL HERE">Highlighted anchor text here</a>

    Dear "Timethief,"
    Thank you. I'll try what you suggest. I haven't had any problem at all until now. Prior to that, I'd type the title ("anchor text") and link address into "notepad," then copy and paste them onto the "edit" feature of my "Index" page. It always showed up as linkable.
    Thanks again.
